If you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with burglary, our experienced criminal defense lawyers can help. When providing a defense in serious cases like burglary charges, it is best if a lawyer can get involved in the case as early as possible. Like many criminal cases, burglary is a very fact-specific crime. This means that the specific type of crime charged — and the potential consequences — will depend on the specific facts that the prosecuting attorney believes can be proven. The earlier a defense lawyer gets involved in your case, to review the evidence against you and conduct an independent investigation, the better the chances of building a strong defense on your behalf.
In Utah Burglary is defined by Utah Code 76-6-202.
(1) An actor is guilty of burglary who enters or remains unlawfully in a building or any portion of a building with intent to commit:
(2) Burglary is a third-degree felony unless it was committed in a dwelling, in which event it is a second-degree felony.
(3) A violation of this section is a separate offense from any of the offenses listed in Subsection (1)(a) through (g), and which may be committed by the actor while in the building.
